Given the never-ending list of injuries they've had to deal with in 2019, it seems like the New York Yankees are reshuffling their roster virtually every other day of the week -- and Wednesday morning was more of the same for the club.

Prior to Tuesday's series finale against the Orioles, the Yanks announced that they've called up infielder Thairo Estrada from Triple-A Scranton. It's a maneuver that adds to the Bombers previously bereft bench depth, as they had been playing with 14 pitchers on their roster.

The 23-year-old rookie impressed in limited time with New York earlier this season. In 50 at-bats, Estrada slashed .280/.321/.520 with three home runs, 11 RBI, and 10 runs scored.

It remains to be seen how long the Venezuelan's second stint in the major's will last. If the Yanks have taught us one thing in 2019, it's that, despite their production, everybody is susceptible to a demotion.

In a corresponding move, the Pinstripes optioned right-handed reliever Adonis Rosa back to Scranton after he made his big league debut Tuesday night against Baltimore. The 24-year-old hurler tossed two innings and gave up one run on one hit (a home run) while striking out two and walking none.

We assume that the youngster will be back with the Yanks once rosters expand in September.
